Mobility Matters Breakfast
Are you unable to join the Mobility Matters Summit? Join us for coffee and a light breakfast with the below guest speakers to hear how their transportation technology innovations are advancing travel, accessibility and wayfinding for all. 
  • John Lannutti, Ohio State University will share his smart paint technology that detects crossings with a cane for people with vision impairments. 
  • Eric Sinagra, PathVu, created an application to detect sidewalk roughness. The app collects data and then can create a shared map for display and analysis.
  • Stephen Smith, Carnegie Mellon, created an intersection phone-based app for safe crossing (ability to integrate with adaptive traffic signal control) for users who need additional time to cross the intersection. 
  • Robert Wall Emerson, Western Michigan University, professor in the Department of Blindness and Low Vision Studies and certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist.
